Le Manoir des Impressionnistes
Le Manoir des Impressionnistes is set in an 18th-century half-timbered farmhouse built in a quintessential Normandy style. Its name is a tribute to the impressionist artists who once painted on the local hillside overlooking the Seine. Today the boutique manor has a stately and intimate atmosphere with wood-beamed ceilings and classically French decor.
The hotel is about a ten-minute drive from Honfleur and has ten elegant rooms equipped with modern amenities and large windows that overlook the hotel gardens or the Seine.
Service is warm and friendly, the restaurant serves gourmet cuisine typical of the region and there’s an inviting bar with a stone fireplace and a refreshing outdoor terrace with views of the water.

Large windows flood the ten guest rooms with natural light and offer views of the hotel gardens and water beyond. No two rooms are styled in the same way, but all are classically French in their design using local patterns on the curtains and quilts, impressionist scenes on the walls and antique furniture to expertly create a subtle balance between tradition and modernity. All feature free Wi-Fi, flat-screen televisions and bathrooms with bath and shower. The Triple Comfort room also has its own balcony.
Le Manoir des Impressionnistes has a peaceful, riverside location just outside vibrant Honfleur. It's a leisurely ten-minute drive to the bustling, restaurant-lined port and you can easily hop in a taxi in the evenings to have dinner in town or stay put, and take in the vivid sunsets over the Seine, which flows right in front of the hotel. The historic D-Day beaches are a bit further afield and can be accessed in a drive of about an hour and a half.
